Charming Crafts- Simple Ribbon Cake Topper

by Maggie Kelleher

This may be just a bit late, but we at My Grandma’s have had so many things to blog about lately that we have been holding off on this. But the wait is over; today I am going to show you how I made the adorable cake topper featured in our recent Instagram birthday video. Don’t have an Instagram or just don’t follow us? No problem, I’ve also added the video below! Though I do have to say we are loving our recent introduction to Instagram, and definitely suggest that you check it out!

One of the little things I did to give our wonderful Latonya’s birthday and this video a little extra pizzazz was to make that little cake topper you see in the video.

College Is Cake- How To Help Your College Student Thrive This Year

by Maggie Kelleher

As August is getting underway, we have been thinking of ways to stay connected with your friends/children/grandchildren/siblings who are off to college this year, because we think keeping that family connection is such an important factor in helping your college student thrive at school.

Many of us know that college can be a busy and sometimes difficult time. Believe me, I do! As a freshman RA (Resident Advisor) I have definitely encountered my fair share of homesickness and just plain stress, from freshman to seniors.

As I and many others are heading back to school soon, I thought it might be a good time to look into how to stay connected with your college student and support them from afar.

by Maggie Kelleher

Have you heard of The Magical Moon Foundation?

The Magical Moon Foundation is a fantastic organization that works to help nurture and empower children with cancer. Their mission statement affirms that The Magical Moon Foundation:
"focuses on empowering children to use their inner strengths to manifest miracles in their lives. The magic behind the Magical Moon begins by encouraging children to find the warrior within. Rather than kids fighting cancer, they become brave young Knights turning their struggles into motivation."
